This is not as large as Michael Simpson’s Playing Hares, but it captures the excitement and energy of the March season. Here the Hares are running at full speed, maybe 50pmh, across an open field one after another. The lead Hare might well stop in her tracks, affectionately “Box” the following Hare, then set off again.

These speedy hares are made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown patina. Then bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
They are beautifully presented in a printed box containing a signed certificate of authenticity. The bronze is engraved with the sculptor’s signature and limited edition number, matching the certificate enclosed.
